And you want to know which school you should study, so that you could command that sort of salary from your employer. Look no further than our quick cut-out and keep guide to making big bucks by choosing the right uni!

With $130,000 median (median, mind!) salary, the Princeton University ranks the highest. But be prepared to pay for the privilege, tuition at all these schools is mostly in the $30,000 range.
